Confusion reigned Thursday
Evening as National Dailies
reported that the Nigeria
Medical Association had called
of their over five-week long
strike. This, the reports
attributed to the recent outbreak of Ebola which
had killed two people and infected five others in
Lagos.
The reports on Nation Newspaper, Vanguard
Newspaper and Medicalworld Nigeria claimed that
a statement was issued by the NMA which cited
“the incursion of Ebola into Nigeria” as a main
reason for suspending the strike.
It is now confirmed that after an intense debate,
which lasted till the early hours of Thursday, the
doctors vowed to continue with the strike.
In a Swift Reaction, the NMA Via its official
twitter handled rebuffed this claim of the strike
being called off on www.medicalworldnigeria.com
urging Journalist on the site to "do well to verify
your info", adding categorically and emphatically
that "The strike has not been called off".
